Dallas Cowboys final record

In case you are in need of a quick recap, here is the team’s 2021 schedule:

@Tampa Bay
@LA Chargers
vs Philadelphia
vs Carolina
vs NYG
@New England
vs Denver
vs Atlanta
@Kansas City
vs Las Vegas
@New Orleans
@ Washington
vs Washington
vs Arizona

Los Angeles, Denver, Arizona, and New England are teams Dallas traditionally doesn’t beat. The Cowboys have been unable to beat Tom Brady in his playing career which makes Tampa Bay an even harder opponent than they already were. Minnesota, New Orleans, Las Vegas, and Kansas City are truly toss-up games. The Cowboys are expected to have the best record in the division, but that might come from winning at least four out of the six divisional games.

If I hypothesize the Cowboys win the season sweep between the Eagles and Giants, win against Carolina, Minnesota, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Washington once, and Arizona that would put the team at 10 wins. With both Washington games coming later in the season, the Ryan Fitzpatrick train will likely sputter in time for the Cowboys’ first matchup with the Football Team. This could result in a season sweep if the team plays their cards correctly.

With New England, Denver, and New Orleans being fairly even matchups, the Cowboys could have as many as 13 wins this season.

Unfortunately, I don’t think the team has that type of luck this season. Count my final prediction at 10-7, which should be enough to win the NFC East in a two-horse rate.
